My blog currently features ongoing poetry projects but occasionally I’ll include completed sets or collections that I’ve written with specific themes of interest. Currently I’m only featuring one as I sift through older works to include. 🙂
Duckling Dialogues (completed):
Click on a letter of the alphabet to jump to a specific poem in the project:
As the world rapidly changes due to global warming, dramatic shifts in climate, and pollution, I was inspired to begin a collection of Tanka written about the lovely creatures of our world continuing to strive for balance and harmony within their habitats and ecosystems. As I grow older while seeking out truth and happiness in the world, the younger and smaller I feel in the grande scheme of the universe. As a result, I refer to myself as a “duckling” holding “dialogue” with the world – always exchanging ideas and waiting for guidance. Sometimes to rediscover the threads of our true self in order to continue stitching the path destined for us, we must regain a childlike, imaginative, and innocent view on the world. A peaceful way to do this as I have found is to build relationships and compassion for animals and to really cherish them for their personalities, souls, and existence.
“Duck spirit animal reminds us that we have webbed feet and, even better, we have wings. We have the power to lift out of the watery emotions that threaten to drown us. We can swim into the depths and find inner silence … we can always dive down into the truth of the beauty that we are.” – Stacey Couch, Wild Gratitude
The collection contains 26 Tanka poems, one for each letter of the alphabet featuring different creatures and animals. I hope to begin and complete this compilation by the end of February 2017. Update: Completed, right on time! Thank you for reading the series!
